I am now at 18 months post DaVinci. Trivial urine problems. Zero level PSA. No pain.
BUT, not just performance issues, but NO performance. Pump - makes things bigger but can not figure out how to last long enough for "fun". Pills - M&M's achieve the same results, taste better, and are a lot cheaper.
Doc finally talked me into trying a shot to see what would happen. Gave me a small, 10cc I think, dose of a single medicine.
Shot it self was no fun, but could probably live with it. Even got a baby amount of swelling, though nothing that would work.
What was bad was the pain in the end of my penis. Way past discomfort. Good thing I did not have a knife available or I would have been even shorter. Felt burning, and generally nothing good in that region.
Doc says next step is tri-mix, but I have to go buy a vial of it to try. I would like to make something work, but, I am giving up.
Can someone convince me to keep trying? If nothing else, my wife would really appreciate somthing other than my fingers.
